my spring break bag.

Can you believe it's almost time for Spring Break? Well, for our local Lander University and many other schools across the US!

We've rounded up our personal favorites as if we were going with you guys. Um, we wish! As for now, we'll just live vicariously through you, so keep tagging us in all of your tropical vacay pics over on our Instagram page :) 

Lilly Pulitzer Sandy Lattice Bandeau + Lita Bottom in Inky Navy Glow and Flow

We die over this neon pink lattice detail of the Sandy Bandeau + Lita Bottoms. This is such a cute swimsuit! Sure to go fast, so snag yours ASAP.

Lilly's Pink Tropics Etta Tee (or you can snag the Pink Tropics Essie Top, shown here) pairs back with Lilly's Ocean View Short in Inky Navy Glow and Flow

these easy breezy elastic waist shorts are perfect to throw in your beach bag. they work over your swimmie, but can also dress up with wedges and again, a cute tank or even blouse. so versatile.

Sheila Fajl Small Everybody's Favorite Hoops | Brushed Gold

Let's talk accessories! Honestly, these hoops are all you need as far as earrings. They are lightweight enough to wear to the beach bars and cabanas, but also dressy enough for cocktails at night! 18k gold plated over nickel free brass. Try some today and see why we can't keep them in. Definitely our bestsellers.

Only Love Today

such an inspirational read that's sure to relax you even more while on the beach!

For more girl power inspo, I also love Rachel Hollis' Girl Wash Your Face + Preach To Yourself by Haley Morgan

Southern Tide Women's Metallic Gold Flipjacks

Our favorite flip flops are BACK! We've got several colors in our Southern Tide Flipjacks, but the metallic gold is our favorite because it just goes with everything. Non-skid bottoms meant for boating and let me tell you, they're the most comfy out there. I find myself wearing mine around the house just because we have hardwood floors and they're so comfy soft on my feet! You won't regret this splurge, trust me.

St. Moriz Instant Self-Tanning Mousse

So if you're use to using St. Tropez self tanning mousse, go ahed and save yourself a few bucks by switching to St. Moriz! Guys, it's only $12.99 (!!!) and it works SO WELL. Never looks orange. I always get compliments when I use it and everyone thinks I've gotten a spray tan. This is a must have for any vacation if I can't make it for a true spray tan before.

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo

My favorite dry shampoo, especially for traveling to to the beach! It smells AMAZING, the packaging is the cutest and it really does the trick. I get mine from our local salon here in Greenwood, Tanglez.

Too Faced Juicy Fruits Grin and Bare It Lip Glaze

When I wear a ton of bright colors + have a Summer tan (or a faux spray tan from my girls over at Allure Salon & Spa) I tend to wear more neutral peachy, pink, and nude shades for my makeup. Love this lip gloss for a shimmering nude lip underneath the tropical palms. 

Another lipstick shade I've been absolutely obsessed with lately is Bite Beauty Bouche Lipstick in Meringue. Hands down, THE perfect matte nude lip.

Salty Britches Chafing Ointment

You're probably thinking, what in the world do I need chafing ointment for? (Unless you're a mom of boys , like me, and then you absolutely know you need!) So back story: Salty Britches ointment was created by one of our sweet customers right here in Greenwood, SC several years ago and is now sold in stores across the country. WHY YOU NEED IT: y'all. I'm addicted to this stuff. I use it on my cuticles and dry spots on my hands, then they're so much better by morning. I use it on my heels after a long day of walking on the beach and after being in the sun, I use it as a lip balm. Not even saying this because Amy is a friend of mine, but it is legit the best lip balm ever...

The best ointment ever. JUST TRY IT! (in our flatly, that's their old packaging in the ointment tubs, but now it comes in a much easier to use tube)

Escada Sorbetto Rosso

If you want the juiciest, fruity fresh and sugar sweet scent for those beach need. this. perfume. 

"Escada Sorbetto Rosso Eau de Toilette evokes the true spirit of the Amalfi Coast through a unique blend of juicy watermelon fruit and refreshing sea salt for a delicate reminder of a southern-Italian summer." 

Merle Norman Lasting Cheekcolor | Sugar Melon

First things first, we loved the name of this blush sample we received from our girls over at Merle Norman Greenwood. Once I tried it, I was obsessed. The prettiest cheeky peach for Spring!

Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Primer & Setting Spray

Like, I'm just going to spray this all over. Errrrwhere. 

It really is a hydrating primer spray, makeup setting spray and refreshing mist spray to use throughout the day. All three in one little bottle, so it's easy to pack just this one product instead of three. A faint coconut smell that's great!

and ladies, we can't forget our bag to pack it all in. 

Absolutely, TURTLEY obsessed with this one...

Lilly Pulitzer Reversible Shopper Tote - Metallic Turtley Awesome


It reverses from a printed canvas to a saffiano leather making it the perfect bag for a shopping run turned beach day. Great gold metallic that's going to be the perfect neutral for all of your Spring Break outfits...

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO while we're beachin' it?

"Vacation" by Dirty Heads

So there ya have it. Now there's tons more that we are likely going to throw in there (can't forget our sunscreen of course!) but this is a great list to get ya going. Hope you guys have an awesome SPRING BREAK and if you're a mom/teacher/student heading out for Spring Break next month (in April!) then we'll have even MORE to fill your suitcase with.
